Carlos Salcedo has hardly looked back since making his professional debut for Real Salt Lake in 2013. Tellingly nicknamed the Titan, this strong and physically imposing centre-half fulfilled his dream of playing in Europe when he signed for Italian side Fiorentina on loan in the wake of the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Having failed to hold down a place in Florence, Salcedo rediscovered his best form after joining Eintracht Frankfurt at the beginning of this season, swiftly establishing himself as a key figure in defence. Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio is an admirer of his talents and selected him on several occasions in 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifying.
